Bright Futures
Will Teach You More...
"If I wasn’t in Bright Futures, I would have no idea about scholarships, grants, or even FAFSA. They show you what is available, then they help YOU work to earn it.”

Melissa Cruz, a Bright Futures student in her third year at Utah Valley University, had a bumpy path as she worked to finish high school, and she'll the first to tell you that she was the only one who could fix it!

We Are Grateful...
It's only fitting that in this month of November we have a long list of things for which we are grateful...

Our community of teachers, our community that votes its heart out, and our community that swells with support on Park City's biggest single day of giving.

Thank you Park City! Your fortitude, your civic engagement, and your philanthropy are second to none!
🍎❤️ Educator Gratitude ❤️🍎

As the pandemic marches through its second year, our teachers continue to battle challenges.

And our brave, fierce educators show up, every single day, to ensure our students are inspired to reach their full potential.

As we count all the ways we are thankful this month, let's keep PCSD educators at the top of the list!

We are thrilled to be able to send The Lucky Ones Coffee Camper to each school again as a small gesture of gratitude.

Parents, PCEF also invites you to share your gratitude with our educators this month! A brief email, note, or token of thanks will mean so much to the wonderful people who work to keep students educated, safe, and healthy each day.

The depth of appreciation we have for our educators could never be fully expressed, but PCEF is proud to be able to provide them with a snack and a warm beverage as we continue to thank them for their steadfast commitment to our students and community.
